13 For if you live according to the flesh [the sinful nature], you will die; but if through the Spirit you mortify [put to death] the deeds of the body, you will live.4 [Therefore mortify [put to death] the deeds of the body which are of the earthly life; fornication, impurity, inordinate affections, evil lusts of the flesh, and covetousness, which is idolatry. Col 3:5. Strip yourselves of your former nature that controlled your conduct, which corrupts itself through lusts and desires that spring from delusion. Eph 4:22]
11 In whom you also will be circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision performed by Christ,2 [Christ is the anointing, which teaches you all things and which circumcises your heart, cutting off the foreskin of sin and selfishness to become an inward Jew, inwardly circumcised.]
|1 John 1:7|
7 But if we walk in the light as he is in the light, we have fellowship [in the Spirit] with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanses us from all sin.3 [Today, (09/10/21), no one on earth walks in the light as He is in the light. To walk in the light is to be guided by God, (who is light), in everything to say and to do. All men sit in darkness and walk in darkness until the light arises in their hearts. However, if you're not walking in the light as He is in the light, his blood does nothing to rid you of your sins. From the Word of the Lord within: "Light comes from faith in the voice. Jesus did not die so you can continue to sin."]
|1 John 3:8|
8 He who commits sin is of the devil, for the devil sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God is revealed [in us], that he might destroy [in us] the works [sin] of the devil.4 [Let no man deceive you, saying that you can still be sinning and belong to God; those still sinning serve the devil. Christ is revealed in our flesh to destroy the works of the devil, by condemning the secret sins in our heart, and then destroying even our desire to sin. Paul confirms Jesus destroying the works of the devil in each purified believer: "the God of peace shall crush Satan under your feet shortly." Rom 16:20.]
|Isaiah 43:25 |
25 I, even I, am he who blots out your transgressions for my own sake, and will not remember your sins.
